WHAT IS THERMOGRAPHY?
Thermography is an FDA-approved non-invasive procedure that uses sophisticated cameras and computer systems to take infrared pictures of your body. They provide additional and complementary data to help evaluate patients for inflammation, injury, and at risk areas. There is no exposure to radiation and no contact with your body.
Thermography is used for the evaluation of circulation, inflammation, and neurological function and available for adult and pediatric patients. If a child has an injury, the imaging can be used to help determine the cause and extent as well as monitor the condition over time or in response to treatment.
HOW CAN IT HELP ME?
Thermography can detect early warning signs of cancer years earlier than other screening options. In fact, studies show thermography can detect suspicious cell activity 8 to 10 years before any other test.
But thermography can do much more than scan for cancer. It can also scan for neurological issues like migraines, fibromyalgia, and neuropathy; chronic pain, muscle spasms, and nerve damage; thyroid conditions, colon health, and more.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes! Thermography is completely safe. In fact, it’s even safe for pregnant and nursing women.
It uses infrared (which is nothing more than heat) to take a precise picture of the heat of your body. So there’s no exposure to radiation. No pain. And no contact with your body.
IS IT ACCURATE?
Absolutely! In addition to revealing indications of breast disease and cancer, thermography can also detect abnormal cell activity earlier than many other tests.
HOW DOES THE PROCEDURE WORK?
A female Certified Thermographer will perform your scan in a peaceful, private room. There is no radiation exposure and no contact with your body.
Most scans take 20 to 25 minutes. Full body scans and full body with breast scans take 30 to 45 minutes.
Full Body W/ Breast
* Note: you will receive surgical underwear for full body scans. Breast cannot be covered during the scan.
You’ll receive your scan results in 7 to 10 days. These results can then be discussed with your healthcare provider.
HOW MUCH DOES THE PROCEDURE COST?
The price depends on the part of your body being scanned:
Breast — $155
Lower Body — $199
Upper Body — $199
Cranio – $99
Lumbosacral — $99
Abdomen/Pelvis — $99
Full body — $299
Full Body W/ Breast — $350
Some insurance companies cover thermography screenings, but most do not.
WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY APPOINTMENT?
To ensure the most accurate thermography screening, we encourage patients to consume no coffee or caffeine before their appointment; avoid applying lotion, perfume, hormone cream, or deodorant; and avoid heavy exercise before their scan.
